This was our first stop in our Sri Lanka tour. Even though we checked in late at night, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. We got the rooms right next to the pool. The rooms are very big and the quality of sleep was excellent. The breakfast too was very nice with the sights and sounds of the beach...

This place is awesome to hang around with friends in fact the food was great at "The lellama" but still the desert spread should be improved with a better variety. We will be definitely visiting this place again as we really had a good time enjoying the buffet with our friends.

Definitely want to stay here again. My wife, her parents and I stayed a night (Jan 7, 2017) at Jetwing Sea and we all enjoyed this hotel for different reasons. My in-laws loved the chance to just walk to the beach (which our rooms faced) and watch fishermen at work. I really enjoyed the variety of food offered at the...

We stayed at this hotel on our last night in Sri Lanka before flying out. It's not cheap. It is located right on the beach with a main road running behind it, once inside one is not aware of the traffic. The bedrooms face the beach. The beach itself is not a tourist beach, It's a working Fishermans beach and...

Stayed 2 nights, arriving in the middle of the night after long haul flights. Great place to adjust. Rooms decent. Restaurant nice. Nice pools and the beach was lovely. Other guests were OK. Pretty quiet for a large place with lots of guests.

I would stay here again for certain. I stayed upon a late arrival in Colombo. Didn't want to travel into the city and this was perfect. The room was massive and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable and the sheets were crisp. Lots of little details, such as their own water purifying plant which they supply in reusable glass bottles....

Despite piles of garbage up and down the edge of the beach, Negombo's beach hotels all seem to be absurdly expensive, costing over 30% more than wonderful five-star hotels in Colombo like the Cinnamon Grand. Jetwing Sea is no exception to the venal pricing. The standard rooms come equipped with -- cute tiny ants in the closet -- hungry mosquitoes...

We went there for a quick bite in the afternoon but the service was really slow and the food average. They don't have anything Sri Lanka to eat during the afternoon apparently. The view is nice however and the beach in front of the hotel clean.

For the 1st time in almost 10 years, we visited a jetwing hotel, as it was not a brand we liked, after having had an absolutely horrible stay in one of their other hotels. We expected the same but were pleasantly surprised to find the food to be delicious, the rooms more than comfortable and the staff to be the...
